INFORMATION Technology (IT) workers in Cebu receive higher average salary than their counterparts anywhere else in the country, even surpassing that of Metro Manila, an online job site reported.

JobStreet.com, in its 2015 Cebu Salary Report that was presented yesterday to the local press, said fresh graduates in Cebu working in IT and computer software get paid an average of P25,483 a month. This is P1,534 higher than what a fresh graduate with the same specialization receives in other parts of the country.

The figures in the salary report are based on Jobstreet’s data for its Cebu listings from October to December 2014. The online portal encourages employers to disclose the minimum and maximum salary offer.

Top highest paying jobs

These findings cover fresh graduates, junior executives, managers, and supervisors. Jobstreet served 300,000 job candidates in Cebu out of 500,000 in Central Visayas. Over a thousand companies in Cebu are listed in Jobstreet, with 5,000 postings daily.

“The top three highest paying specializations (for fresh graduates) in Cebu are the same as with the rest of the country,” Jobstreet said. These are in IT and computer software; IT and computer network or database administration; and technical and help desk support.

Yoda Buyco, Jobstreet Philippines marketing director, explained that Cebuano IT workers are mostly employed by large BPO companies, which tend to offer higher salaries to attract more jobseekers.

In Metro Manila, IT workers are employed in different industries and in both local and foreign companies.

Even among junior executives or employees, those with one to four years of experience get a better average pay compared to others in the same level nationally.

The highest paying job for junior executives in Cebu are the technical and help desk support workers, who have average salaries of P38,163. This is followed by those working in IT-computer software at P32,199, corporate finance or merchant banking at P30,759, IT-computer hardware at P30,455 and IT-computer network or database administration at P27,754.

Surging demand

However, the trend of better-paid employees in Cebu doesn’t follow that of supervisors and managers. Jobstreet said the average salary for these kind of employees is lower than that of their national counterparts, particularly in Manila, but IT continues to be the best-paying specialization for both position levels.

“The demand for IT (skills) is surging. There are a lot of jobs available, but in terms of quality, the supply is low,” Buyco said.

The official said Jobstreet is feeding the Department of Labor and Employment and the Philippine Overseas Employment Agency its own labor-related statistics.

Currently, there are 20,000 companies posting at JobStreet and 100,000 jobs available to date.

At present, the most in-demand jobs for fresh graduates are customer service positions, particularly workers for business process outsourcing companies. -- http://www.sunstar.com.ph/cebu/business/2015/04/15/
